"Mothership" (Ripple; 2013)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
Mothershipís CD is a great debut from a band that takes the stoner guitar fuzz and turns it into a driving rockíníroll record. The band's stoner sound is definitely present here but, unlike a lot of stoner bands Ė and I love stoner music -- the music isnít downbeat, trudging and slow. Instead, it rocks hard and at a relatively fast pace. It's sort of like hard rock-meets-stoner rock. Imagine classic hard rock bands like UFO and Bad Company with a fuzzier, stoner-tinged sound.
The songs are all well-written and loaded with subtle hooks. The production is crisp and clear. This is very much an album I will listen to a lot. I look forward to hearing much more from Mothership in the future.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
